The PIPO W11 is a budget alternative to the Microsoft Surface lineup, specifically the Surface Go 2. The W11 is still relatively cheap though, thanks to its Gemini Lake processor and 8 GB of RAM.

With the W11, PIPO has designed a 2-in-1 machine that is similar in spirit to Microsoft's Surface series. The W11 is closer in size and performance to the Surface Go 2, but it comes in at a lot cheaper than Microsoft's tablet. Currently, Banggood sells the PIPO W11 for US$299.99, for which you receive not only the tablet but also a detachable keyboard and active pen. 

The W11 measures 290.4 x 179.3 x 9 mm, within which PIPO has incorporated an Intel Celeron N4100 chipset and 8 GB of RAM. The Celeron N4100 is a quad-core chip from Intel's Gemini Lake family, for reference, which can clock up to 2.4 GHz. The 14 nm chip does not support Intel Hyper-Threading, but it does feature a UHD Graphics 600 (Gemini Lake) GPU.

PIPO offers the W11 with 128 GB of storage, but this can be expanded using a microSD card. The tablet packs a USB Type-C port, two USB Type-A 3.0 ports, a headphone jack and a micro HDMI output. There is a 12V DC input for charging, too.

The W11 weighs around 800 g and houses an 11.6-inch IPS display that resolves natively at 1,920 x 1,080 pixels. The machine comes pre-loaded with Windows 10 and supports dual-band Wi-Fi.
